Creating a Quote

Use our online system to create price quotations which are valid for 30 days.

To create an online price quotation, which is valid for 30 days, add the product(s) you wish to purchase to your Cart as if you were going to place the order straight away but instead of selecting either of the "Buy on..." buttons, click "Create a Quote" instead.

Enter the name or reference you wish the quote to be saved under in the box provided and hit "OK". If you do not wish to save the quote at this time, hit "cancel" and the product will remain in your Cart.

Once the quote has been saved, a Quote ID will be applied to it, which you can reference in any correspondence with us.

You can amend the "Deliver to" and/or "Invoice to" details as required by clicking on the "Modify" button. Once you have made the necessary changes, select "Submit" to save them. Please note, the tax applied to your order may vary according to a number of factors: these include your address, the registration / delivery address for your product(s), and the type of product purchased. Where applicable, tax is calculated and rounded at a per-unit level. See more.

If you need to add any notes to the quote for your reference, type these into the "Your Notes:" field and hit the "Save Notes" button.

All our quotes are valid as pro-forma invoices and can be used to make a payment for an order.

If you decide not to keep the quote for any reason, you can cancel it by selecting the "Delete Quote" button.

If you are purchasing on behalf of an Organization, which has a credit account set up with us, you can create quotes online and make them visible to your colleagues or purchasers who are also registered with ComponentSource (see below).

Quotes for organizations

To create an online quotation, which can be viewed and purchased by other registered users of your organization, add the product(s) you wish to purchase to your Cart and ensure you are buying on behalf of the organization and not yourself.

Click the "Create a Quote" button and enter the name or reference you wish the quote to be saved under in the box provided.
If you would like to make the quote visible for purchase by another user within your organization then please select the user from the "Users" dropdown menu.
If you would like to make the quote visible for purchase by any users of an account within your organization then please select an account from the "Accounts" dropdown menu.
If you would like to make the quote visible for purchase by all account users within your organization then please select the organization from the "Organizations" dropdown menu.

Once you save your selection, an email will automatically be sent to those users advising them of this fact. Enter any notes or text you wish to add to this email in the field provided and hit "OK" to save the Quote and send the email(s). If you do not wish to save the quote at this time, hit "Cancel" and the product will remain in your Cart.

Visibility of saved quotes can also be given and removed within the quote at any time, prior to expiration or deletion of the quote. To do this, change the "Users", "Accounts" or "Organizations" who currently have Quote visibility in the appropriate dropdown menu and hit "Save". An email confirming the change will automatically be sent to the relevant registered users.

Once the quote has been saved, a Quote ID will be applied to it, which you can reference in any correspondence with us.

You can amend the "Deliver to" and/or "Invoice to" details as required by clicking on the "Modify" button. Once you have made the necessary changes, select "Submit" to save them. Please note that the tax applied to your order may vary according to a number of factors: these include your address, the registration / delivery address for your product(s), and the type of product purchased. Where applicable, tax is calculated and rounded at a per-unit level. See more.
